Siemens to sponsor Hungarian students’ Solar Decathlon project

The Hungarian unit of German engineering giant Siemens has become the chief sponsor for participation of a team from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) at next year’s Solar Decathlon in Madrid under an agreement signed on Wednesday.

The sponsorship agreement was signed by Siemens Zrt chairman-CEO Dale A Martin and BME rector Gabor Peceli.

The BME team, whose ODOO Project has already been accepted for the 2012 Solar Decathlon, says it aims to "create an innovative solar building in which we apply our architectural and technical developments".

The team will have nine days to construct and put their project into operation.
